bill clinton can do a man of lot of good >> bromley also took a political jab at president obama, implying he has not done enough to confront foreign-policy challenges and later on the campaign trail in ohio, romney said his administration would not characterize the middle east unrest as a bump in the road >> we need a president who takes this serious >> romney continues his tour with three stops in ohio on wednesday. republicans have criticized president obama for not having bilateral one-on-one meetings while he was in new york. the last time that happened was 20 years ago when another president was running for reelection, george bush. >> those monthly cellphone bills can be brutal but don't let your smart phone plan fool you. more people are turning to an often overlooked option. julie has more on how you can stretch for paycheck. >> aubrey is not afraid of commitment but she does not want one with herself on carrier. she has an unlimited prepaid plan with metro p c s that costs $56 per month, half of what she paid for at&t or sprint >> is something that a lot of people don't

to control spending, but i think you need a democrat, someone like bill clinton who can work with both parties. and that's not what we're getting right now. host: thank you very much, pat. our next call comes from david from minnesota on our line for independents. caller: yes, i think the ones that are at the top of the food chain are the lobbyists and the people that are buying our government out from underneath us, and i think we should have term limits and get rid of some of the people that have been in there for 100 years. and i think right now we've got the best government money can buy, and it's been bought by the lobbyists and the big corporations. there's also a saying, congress fiddled while the u.s. burned. and there's only 10% approval of congress right now. and these guys get too cozy with the lobbyists and the public should break up the logjam by voting all these old-timers out and getting rid of them. as far as the one-party system, hitler had a one-party system with the nazi party, and stalin had it with the communist party. i don't think that works out very well either.
